So many of my childhood memories are wrapped around your family. Lots of food on the kitchen table. Aunt Julia was always nothing but love and patience. In the last few months I can remember with a smile her telling me she had always been stubborn ( she had a twinkle in her eye when she said that) and once she needed something and she looked straight at me and said "Janie will do it!" Funny how that makes me happy and cry at the same time. Love to you all
